Mäkelä, Tiina E.; Peltola, Mikko J.; Nieminen, Pirkko; Paavonen, E. Juulia; Saarenpää-Heikkilä, Outi; Paunio, Tiina; Kylliäinen, Anneli – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Fragmented sleep is common in infancy. Although night awakening is known to decrease with age, in some infants night awakening is more persistent and continues into older ages. However, the influence of fragmented sleep on development is poorly known. In the present study, the longitudinal relationship between fragmented sleep and psychomotor…

Bell, Megan F.; Bayliss, Donna M.; Glauert, Rebecca; Ohan, Jeneva L. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
There is evidence that children of incarcerated parents are at risk of poor developmental and educational outcomes. However, much of this evidence is limited by biased samples, as studies must rely on opt-in recruitment. Administrative data present an opportunity to overcome this challenge, as they capture information on all incarcerated…

Raffington, Laurel; Prindle, John J.; Shing, Yee Lee – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Alleviating disadvantage in low-income environments predicts higher cognitive abilities during early childhood. It is less established whether family income continues to predict cognitive growth in later childhood or whether there may even be bidirectional dynamics. Notably, living in poverty may moderate income-cognition dynamics. In this study,…

White, Elaine K.; Garon-Carrier, Gabrielle; Tosto, Maria G.; Malykh, Sergey B.; Li, Xinying; Kiddle, Beatrix; Riglin, Lucy; Byrne, Brian; Dionne, Ginette; Brendgen, Mara; Vitaro, Frank; Tremblay, Richard E.; Boivin, Michel; Kovas, Yulia – Developmental Psychology, 2018
There is little research to date on the academic implications of teaching twins in the same or different classroom. Consequently, it is not clear whether twin classroom separation is associated with positive or negative educational outcomes. As a result, parents and teachers have insufficient evidence to make a well-informed decision when twins…

Sabato, Hagit; Kogut, Tehila – Developmental Psychology, 2018
We examined the role of the recipient's neediness as a moderator in the relation between children's household religiosity and prosocial behavior. Examining the behavior of children (2nd and 5th graders) from religious and nonreligious households in the dictator game, we found that the extent of sharing did not differ significantly between the 2…

Bayet, Laurie; Behrendt, Hannah F.; Cataldo, Julia K.; Westerlund, Alissa; Nelson, Charles A. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Early facial emotion recognition is hypothesized to be critical to later social functioning. However, relatively little is known about the typical intensity thresholds for recognizing facial emotions in preschoolers, between 2 and 4 years of age. This study employed a behavioral sorting task to examine the recognition of happy, fearful, and angry…

Zupan, Zorana; Blagrove, Elisabeth; Watson, Derrick G. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Adults can ignore old and prioritize newly arriving visual stimuli, enabling optimal goal-directed search (visual marking; Watson & Humphreys, 1997). However, the ability to use time of appearance to enhance visual search is currently absent in work on attentional development in children. Experiment 1 examined children's (6-, 8-, and…

Lu, Ting; Jin, Shenghua; Li, Ling; Niu, Li; Chen, Xinyin; French, Doran C. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
The longitudinal associations between popularity, overt aggression, and relational aggression were assessed in middle school and high school cohorts drawn from a large urban Northwest Chinese city. The middle school (n = 880; 13.33 years.) and high school samples (n = 841; 16.66 years.) were each followed for 2 years. In the concurrent regression…

Rote, Wendy M.; Smetana, Judith G. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
In line with increasing calls for within-family analyses of monitoring processes, this study examined profiles of (combined) adolescent information management strategies and parent knowledge-gathering strategies among 174 families with middle adolescents (M[subscript age] = 15.7 years; 164 mother-teen and 112 father-teen dyads). Three…

Berlin, Lisa J.; Martoccio, Tiffany L.; Jones Harden, Brenda – Developmental Psychology, 2018
This randomized controlled trial tested an enhanced model of Early Head Start (EHS) that combined home-based EHS with Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC; Dozier & Bernard, 2017), a brief, attachment-based intervention. The trial included 208 low-income mothers (87% Latina) and their 6- to 18-month-old infants. Control participants…

Gerstorf, Denis; Hülür, Gizem; Wagner, Gert G.; Kunzmann, Ute; Ram, Nilam – Developmental Psychology, 2018
General well-being is known to deteriorate sharply at the end of life. However, it is an open question how rates of terminal change differ across affective and evaluative facets of well-being and if individual difference correlates operate in facet-specific ways. We examined how discrete affective states (happy, angry, fearful, sad) and…

Barnes, J. C.; Motz, Ryan T. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
There is a large body of evidence revealing that minorities--in particular, Black citizens--are overrepresented in the criminal justice system. But the causes of these inequalities have been difficult to pin down. One line of work suggests the inequalities in arrest may be traced to inequalities in exposure to school discipline. Specifically, the…

Ganea, Natasa; Hudry, Kristelle; Vernetti, Angélina; Tucker, Leslie; Charman, Tony; Johnson, Mark H.; Senju, Atsushi – Developmental Psychology, 2018
A fundamental question about the development of communication behavior in early life is how infants acquire adaptive communication behavior that is well-suited to their individual social environment, and how the experience of parent-child communication affects this development. The current study investigated how infants develop communication…

Waters, Theodore E. A.; Raby, K. Lee; Ruiz, Sarah K.; Martin, Jodi; Roisman, Glenn I. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Attachment theory suggests that early experiences with caregivers are carried forward across development in the form of mental representations of attachment experiences. Researchers have investigated at least two representation-based constructs when studying attachment and successful adaptation in adulthood: (a) coherence of autobiographical…

Zeguers, Maaike H. T.; van den Boer, Madelon; Snellings, Patrick; de Jong, Peter F. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
A central question in the field of foreign language acquisition is whether the processes involved in reading development in a foreign language are universal or dependent on characteristics of the specific language involved. We investigated the impact of orthographic depth and writing system on word reading acquisition in a foreign orthography, by…
